    I’ve been wanting a list of books with homeschoolers! Thanks for sharing this.

    You’re welcome! I think it’s good for kids to be able to read about other kids who are educated outside the public school system.

    Some of these I have read myself, some I have heard of, and some were new to me too!

    This is awesome! We’ve only read Nim’s Island. We’ll have to check out all the others.

    You should include The Tethered World by Heather L. L. Fitzgerald. It’s a portal fantasy where a homeschool family enters a world filled with all the legendary creatures of the world, and the autistic twin turns out to be crucial to the world.

    HI there! I am a homeschooling mom from South Africa and TWO of my fellow South African HS moms have written beautiful novels featuring homeschooled children. You can check them out on Amazon: Seekers of the Lost Boy by Taryn Hayes, and Cuckoo Clock Secrets by Karyn Collett.

    I also ran across, purely by accident, that Treasurer Hunter’s has home schooled children in it too.

    The Martin and Sylvia audio book series from Sparkle Stories is also about homeschooled kids.

    Yes, Seekers of the Lost Boy! I had forgotten about that one. I am currently doing a full review of Cuckoo Clock Secrets that will be up on here soon!
